2. Signing DB Jalen Mills

The Giants secondary took a hit with McKinney, who led the Giants with three interceptions last season, left for the Packers and cornerback Adoree' Jackson not expected back either. So, Big Blue addressed much-needed help in the secondary and signed veteran safety Jalen Mills. Even though Mills is on the older side of his career being 30 years old, signing a veteran player like Mills could be a great move that could pay off for the Giants.

Despite people saying Mills may have lost his step being at the latter end of his career, he can still be a reliable presence for the Giants young secondary, as he has played in at least 10 games for the last four years and while he did not have much production last season, he did have a solid 2022 season for the New England Patriots, as he has two interceptions and had 31 total tackles with five passes that he deflected in just 10 games played.

Losing McKinney obviously hurts, but getting a reliable guy like Mills in will be a benefit for new defensive coordinator Shane Bowen. Mills is also versatile, so if the Giants need some help at cornerback, he could make the switch to the outside too.
